Diving in Antigua and Barbuda

Quick facts

You can expect lovely warm, clear water are your trip to Antigua and Barbuda. While you can dive here throughout the year, nasty tropical storms from July to October stir up the water, leading to lowered visibility.

Cades Reef is a particular favorite among divers. The reef stretches for several miles, and is a protected area. You can see plenty of creatures here, as the reef descends many meters, giving you diverse regions to explore.

For those who enjoy wreck diving, don’t miss out on the Andes, a merchant ship from the turn of the century. This three-masted beauty is in shallow water, so the light permeates well, leading to some excellent photo opportunities.
